Woman pleads guilty in Fed court for taking part in large-scale multi-state 25 member - $2M identity theft ring that hit retailers as well. Kelly Jenelle Scott admitted to stealing personal information (driver’s licenses and bank account numbers) and using it to create counterfeit checks from 2010 through November of 2011. She said she’d pass the checks at retail stores and banks. She said she made more the $15,000 worth of fraudulent purchases and attempted fraudulent purchases in multiple states. The theft ring Scott was part of would negotiate counterfeit checks at retail stores in an effort to buy expensive items, the department said. They would then return the items for cash. Scott’s co-conspirators would also deposit counterfeit checks into the accounts of unsuspecting people only to take money out shortly after. The group operated in some 14 states. So far 15 have pleaded guilty and 10 not guilty. (Source

It appears as though there may be one group hitting the downtown stores and they may be reluctant to report the incidents to law enforcement. (Source
